Studio Portrait

Carte de visite by John Thomas Pentney (1855-1937) of South Parade, Huddersfield. Pentney was born in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, but settled in Huddersfield with his family circa 1900. Both the 1901 and 1911 Census returns list the family residing at their shop at 6 South Parade. On the reverse of the photograph is written J. Pyrah in pencil, although it's more likely the girl is Jessie Louise Pyrah's sister, Dorothy Muriel May Pyrah (1891-1989).
